March 3rd, 2019 “The Law and The Prophets”
From Brother Harvey
We continue to pray for our church – both locally and around the world. Pastor Joe and I will take a few minutes and address our congregation in both services as to the concerns of the 2019 Special Session of General Conference. Also on Wednesday March 6 after we eat (5:30ish) we will offer updates and concerns.
Today’s Sermon – “The Law and The Prophets”
Luke 9:28-36 New International Version (NIV)
28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. 31 They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.) 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves and did not tell anyone at that time what they had seen.
Our theme throughout the season of Lent as we make our way to Easter, Sunday April 21 is called, “LISTEN TO HIM”. This statement comes straight from God our Father in Luke 9:35, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.”. Sermons, Bible Studies, Small Groups, Children and Youth will be using Luke 9-24 as our main Scripture focus. We will glean from (The Seedbed Daily Text, by J. D, Walt called “LISTEN TO HIM – Forty Steps On The Road To Resurrection”.
(Where are you with Jesus today? Why is this important? Because however we identify HIM in our life determines the depths to which we will listen to HIM. – J. D. Walt)
